    'Do you know what really grinds my gears?'-topic

    So... Since this Family Guy scene went 'meme', I figured out we could have such a topic?

    Easy as it is, post something that grinds your gears! Nothing more/difficult to it!

    For starters;
    People going to festivals and taking pictures ALL THE TIME (except the actual photographers ofcourse). That's what grinds my gears. I don't go out a lot, but I've been to (a few) festivals and more than half of the time the area in front of the stage has half of it filled with small screens up in the sky. What the hell? Why do people actually pay for a festival just to take pictures to be like 'OMG I WAS DER'? No. That's just.. NO. I can understand if you take a picture or 2, but not when people continuously take pictures and record clips.
    This is seriously something I'll never understand. And (with all respect for those who feel spoken to) in my eyes you're an insta-douche if you do this.

    I hate when I'm watching a movie with family or friends and they're on their phones for half the film, asking me what's going on or missing vital, meaningful moments in the film that make it worth watching in the first place. Or when you go out to eat with people and they sit on their phones there, too. Or failing to realize that taking a picture of a moment can ruin it, when they should have appreciated it for themselves and remembered it.
    I absolutely despise what smart phones have done to people and society.What happened to actually living life and sharing it with people?

    Funnily enough I agree with you there, twice in the past 2 weeks I have almost had accidents with people chancing their luck at round abouts and just so happen to have a guy do it to me this morning, told me to calm down as well the cheeky c**t!!!

    People that watch movies that have seen it before, so they tell whats going to happen in the best parts of the movie...like WTF!?!

    That really grinds my gears, more then it should.

    Like right before it happens, they're like " Yeah check this out, Vader is Luke's dad!"

    Smartphones are the death of the movie experience. People with short attention spans use them all the time to check facebook or texts. $#@!ing annoying. I didn't pay $12.50 to see some obnoxious screen in front of me. Smartphones should be banned from movie theaters...or have a signal that jams them from turning on till the credits roll, and it only turns on outside the theater. $#@! those people who use their phones in a theater.

    I also hate feminists and being politically correct.

    YES phones should not be allowed out when in the $#@!ing cinema screens!! When I watched Dawn of the Planet of the Apes there were 3 girls to the left of us constantly on their phones and laughing about $#@!, I was so tempted to tell them to shut the $#@! up but their parents did it eventually.

    @Duff - because I didn't intend on crashing into them anyway and the last thing that will stop me is a bloody sign telling me they have their spawn that I couldn't give two $#@!s about on aboard. For all I care they could have "sandwich on board" and it would mean equal to me: $#@! all!

    Just put "please don't be a $#@!head and crash Into me"

    'Nother thing I hate to death.

    People who heard a song on the radio and suddenly shout they listen to that genre.
    E.g. I know some people who heard Netsky - Come Alive on the radio ONCE. Few days later they shouted they listen to Drum & Bass and that they're a huge Netsky fan; ask them to name other Drum & Bass artists or 1 title from a Netsky-song that was from 2009 and 9/10 won't be able to name a single one. Everyday, Lost In This World, Come Back Home, Starlight, Young & Foolish, Tomorrow's Another Day... So much titles.

    I don't get people like that. I really don't.

    Vader is Luke's dad?? No! You've ruined it for me now!

    People who are busy on their phones while walking around. You know I could punch you in the face or steal that phone and you'd never see it coming right? They almost run into me because they aren't paying attention.

    People who park like $#@!s and take up two spaces.

    Everyone who drive a truck I instantly hate you. Listen I know you have a small $#@!, a low sense of self worth or you're just an arrogant $#@! but owning a truck does not mean you can drive however you like. Driving right on my bumper with not intimidate me and make me speed up for you. Piss off.

    People who hang confederate flags. Really?

    Focus. Control. Conviction. Resolve. A true ace lacks none of these attributes. Nothing can deter you from the task at hand except your own fears. This is your sky.

    After reading this, it reminded me of the world cup.

    Which is another thing that really grinds my gears.
    People here (in Belgium) complain a lot about everything they can find and how Belgium is bad in a lot of ways. The team (which, if you look at it, isn't even proper Belgian but mostly immigrants who came to Belgium) has to play 1 match and all of a sudden everybody's acting as if Belgium's the best country in the world. $#@! OFF WITH THAT. Either cry or cheer, but don't just cry or cheer when you don't have a decent reason. I'm not a big football fan, I'm not going to lie, but does that mean suddenly everybody should cheer because 'oh dear they have to play a game'? No. I don't see the use of it. If you cry all the time, then continue crying. Don't act as if Belgium's suddenly the best $#@! you can ever visit or whatever. It's not.
    No. WC. OH $#@! EVERYBODY GET OUT SOME BELGIAN MERCHANDISE!
    Suddenly every idiot around the block's driving around with ridiculous, ugly $#@!s on their car-mirrors and loads of people hanging a flag outside their house. Ridiculous. :'/

    And for those who want to know what I mean with carmirror-ugly-$#@!s.
    Here. Enjoy.

    not very patriotic Wax?

    Another thing that gets to me is when people answer their phone while you're talking to them.....

    *queue internal dialogue*

    "mutha $#@!er you can call them the $#@! back! i was mid $#@!ing sentence and your phone will save their $#@!ing number! I mean $#@!, im not inconsiderate, i can hear your $#@!ing phone ringing too, at least let me stop so i don't look like a moron!"

    hmmm, but all you do is smile, or look at the sky....and wish they were dead or something

    When people get that spit bubble in the back of their throat and will not swallow to make it go away. It is the most annoying thing to me and I want to punch people that don't take care of it. I had a teacher in school that got them all the time and never cared. It was $#@!ing torture.

    Social media in general. It has destroyed our society. People can't even have normal conversations anymore. Very proud to say I don't have a Twitter or instagram. I posted a status update on Facebook about a year ago.

    Throttling of unlimited data on phone plans. Thanks, now I can't watch porn until my next billing period!

    Pretty much every driver on the road.

    People who like hate things because everyone else likes it. Mostly with sports teams.

    Online trophies.

    You know what really grinds my gears?

    When someone buys a sequel to a game or movie like mgs4 and then asks if they should play 1 2 & 3 first or what order they should play it in. What the $#@! order do u think?

    When people complain about being spoiled for over 20 year old movies, theres gotta be some kind of statute of limitations for this kinda $#@!. Soylent green is people king kong dies planet of the apes was earth all along.

    People who go in a discussion thread about a show after the newest ep has aired and complain about people spoiling the newest ep cause they havent seen it yet. If you havent seen it yet dont go into the thread, no ones gonna wait til after you feel like watching to start posting.

    When I offer to buy people food and they say no thanks but when I get mine they try to take some off my plate. I offered just so you wouldnt do that.

    Yep. That's beyond annoying... and I especially love it when they match the same exact speed as the person next to them so you can't pass them.
